It’s no surprise that the handsome Eddie Redmayne looks amazing as a woman in a picture that surfaced today from the production company behind his latest film, The Danish Girl. The newly-minted Best Actor Oscar recipient is currently working on his first role since his moving performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, where he will play Danish painter Lili Elbe, one of the first people to receive sex reassignment surgery almost 100 years ago.

The 33-year old transforms into Elbe with full makeup and a curly-haired wig in this sneak peek from the film, which is slated for release in 2016. While it would be great to see more transgender women in these types of roles, we can’t help but be totally enamored by Redmayne’s red lipstick and kohl-lined eye combo in this gorgeous photo. We don’t know about you, but we’re hoping to see more snaps before the film’s release.
